For Mom with Michelle Philippi

Happy Monday - and happy May!
Mother's Day is this Sunday and I've got a couple of cards made special for dear ol' mom.
It would seem that I am on a pocket card kick lately for here I am with one again. I love being different every now and then and giving a card in a little glassine bag or some sort of pouch instead of the standard envie, and these lil' kraft bags go so well with the vintage feel that you get with with anything from Glitz. I took a vintage paper layer from the Laced With Grace collection and then layered on some transparent Peek-A-Boos from that same collection along with one from Afternoon Muse.
And then I stamped a simple "mother" inside this pretty transparent Glitzer.
My card is a clean canvas of some cream cardstock with inked edges tied off with some Glitz tulle.
And yes, again with the Peek-A-Boo banners. I can't stop loving these!
On my second card I went back a collection to Scarlett because I happen to have a little redheaded boy and I had to have him on a Mother's Day card. So I cut him out of a Scarlett paper layer. I coordinated the orangeyness with some fun Polka Dot paper from the Love Nest collection, made my simple sentiment from Glitz Teeny Alphas and showed off his little flower with some glitter.
